So I just finished “Lucky 13” which is a short story from the Terms of Enlistment Series by none-other than Marko “Munchkin Wrangler”/ “Major Caudill” Kloos. I must say I am DYING for his latest “Lines of Departure” to drop later next month.
I will be honest “Terms of Enlistment” felt a LOT to me like the great film “Full Metal Jacket”, not just in the obvious comparisons, but also like the film I deeply love the first half, and just enjoy the 2nd. This has nothing to do with the subject matter or the writing style, just the first half left a few details I noticed un-attended to as the story progressed.
Still “Measures of Absolution” dabbled in, but in no way resolved some of those details.
Yep, Marko, you got me hooked!
Give them a read if you’re into Sci-Fi and/or Military fiction. Tho honestly I LIKE both those genres but they aren’t what generally read, which is a ringing endorsement as well!
